If you, your company or your clients make and/or receive international payments, you already understand the importance of a proactive currency strategy. All currency strategies need to be revisited on occasion; there is perhaps no better reminder of this than the recent volatility of the pound following Brexit. Fortunately, FXcompared can provide assistance not only in analysing your currency strategy, but can also help ensure you are getting the best international transfer rates possible.


Managing Currency Risk

Following the announcement of the United Kingdom’s historic vote to leave the European Union, the pound fell to a historical low against the US dollar. For those managing businesses or accounts transferring pounds internationally, i.e. paying and/or receiving funds in GBP, suddenly you may be realising the accounts you manage have less money per transaction and your profit margins may be lower than before Brexit. For many financial directors, Brexit’s recent influence on the volatility of the pound indicates the importance of either building a new currency strategy, or rethinking your current currency strategy. FXcompared offers a variety of free tools to guide you through the chaos of currency strategy post-Brexit.

Managing currency risk and optimizing currency hedging tactics, when applicable, is important. While many financial decision makers go through their bank by default, this “accidental” currency strategy is less effective at saving money. An excellent Brexit strategy is to engage with a currency specialist. Currency specialists, or currency brokers, not only offer better exchange rates to their customers than banks, but they also offer a variety of traditional hedging services offered by banks, such as currency forward contracts, futures and currency options, that are not only effective strategies, but generally a better price than going directly through your bank.

Volatility Tool


FXcompared can assist you in assessing the volatility of the pound compared to various currencies with its volatility. By assessing the volatility of currencies you are exposed to during international transactions, you can better plan ahead and prevent unnecessary loss with a currency strategy that addresses this movement.
